1  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Anyone tried Bitcoin Betting Website ? on: June 16, 2016, 12:53:28 AM
Whether this website is legit or not is beside the point.

This is because the house has a 50% edge. 16 possibilities (with either a 4x or 8x payout). This is literally the WORST payout of any gambling site I've ever come across. Why would an intelligent gambler like yourself take the worst odds imaginable?

Why anyone would even consider gambling on a site with a 50-75% edge (depending on 4x vs 8x) is the definition of ignorant stupidity. Sorry if I come across abrasive, but most sites have a house edge of 1-5% depending on the game etc.

50% is highway robbery. No doubt about it. Stay away like the plague.

Or conversely, convince me why gambling with such an egregious house edge is a smart decision.

Happy betting (on ANY site other than the aforementioned)

(Here's a free tip -- play online live blackjack and use Hi-Lo to count and you can have an edge OVER the house of 1-2%).
2  Economy / Scam Accusations / Scammmed from SatoshiDice for .3BTC on withdrawal on: June 15, 2016, 10:42:56 PM
The basics are that I tried to withdraw .3BTC from SD to a DNM wallet address 1CKpcK1LbffQia11nPFCcgXR1RzwTjVyPU.

SD said the withdrawal took place but The funds never appeared.

When I try to check the blockchain it doesn't  show that this deposit occurred.
Am I missing something here?
Does SD not allow for withdrawals into certain wallets?


I've tried contacting their support email to no avail. Is there anything else I can do to recover these lost/stolen coins?

Any help/thoughts/advice would be greatly appreciated.

3  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: Scammed out of almost .33BtC from Satoshi Dice on: June 15, 2016, 10:24:58 PM
Thank you for the replies. I'm not really concerned about the hot wallet running out of funds (since my withdrawal for .3 BTC ostensibly went through without issue). my issue is that I withdrew .3 BTC and it never appeared.

"Maybe if you post what you have on satoshidice's website could tell us a bit more."

I'm sorry but I don't follow what you're saying. I'm not the sharpest banana Smiley. I have contacted SD support email, but is there anything else I can/should do to expedite this process?

Thanks and I will move this to service discussion.
4  Economy / Scam Accusations / Satoshi Dice withdrawal and funds never received on: June 15, 2016, 09:56:45 PM
I tried to withdraw .31 BTC and although the withdrawal appeared successful from SD (it was to a DNM wallet) it never appeared in my wallet balance.

Is there some flaw/bug in SD system where it won't deposit to certain wallets? (For example I've had no problem withdrawing to blockchain.info

After that I had .02 BTC left and trying to withdraw that I got that obnoxious orange banner saying that there is -2.5Pi balance i.e. not enough in the hot wallet etc etc.

Any help or thoughts would be appreciated.

I've contacted support but nothing yet.
5  Economy / Scam Accusations / Scammed out of almost .33BtC from Satoshi Dice on: June 14, 2016, 09:08:42 PM
I'm not sure if this is in the correct forum, if not my apologies.

So basically I transferred .30 BTC to SD and played until I was up to .33 At that time I withdrew .29 to this address:

1CKpcK1LbffQia11nPFCcgXR1RzwTjVyPU. The withdrawal ostensibly went through fine. (except that the funds were never delivered). I made another deposit to this address from the blockchain.info wallet and it went through without a hitch.

However, after I tried to transfer the remaining balance I got an orange banner telling me of an insufficient hot wallet balance (everything from .00000x available to equations like 9e-013.

Now I'm not that concerned over the .04 BTC that I couldn't transfer (although for the oldest BTC gambling site ever you'd think that they would have it figured out).

However, I am devastated that my .3BTC has vanished into the ether. I have contacted support@satoshidice.com to explain what has happened with no response.

I'm at my wits end and I literally can't afford to lose these coins. Any help/advice/etc. would be greatly appreciated.
